FYI, e7200 is a wolfdale :)

'tis a wolfdale, but as it's $70 cheaper than the Q6600 (with the addition of $50 from my old motherboard) I can get a new mobo too.

Quote by nesquick
most users on atomic have q6600's so they must be semi alright :P


Many of them may have done this before the E7200 was available though :P

Quote by c0nc0n
Q6600 would be a better and a safer way to go. There is no confirmation whether the E7200 is a Wolfadle (someone might know) and the Q6600 is a Kentsfield.


It's 45nm, so surely it is Wolfdale?

Quote by nesquick
i went back to dual core and loved it :P


Care to give a few more details? You went up from a Q6600 I assume? Would you have loved it as much if the dual core had half as much L2 cache and was running at 4Ghz? (Or what about just running at 4Ghz? Assuming I can score an E8200@4Ghz)

i had a q6700 and found its lack of overclockability rather annoying well i was chasing 4ghz plus so my CF setup does not get bottlenecked, everything runs faster at 4.5ghz :p if you want a dead easy oc get an E0 stepping chip.

Performance wise though how did you find it? I'm assuming for games it blew the quad core away, did do any other tests/benches?

(And off topic, but I doubt my hardware would be able to handle >4Ghz anyways :P)

every application i run is pretty much single core based (games) and i much prefer everything at 4.5ghz over 3.2ghz the difference to my frames per second was around 30% more although thats CF. as i said if you can source an E0 stepping e8400/e8500 you will have 4ghz relatively easy (i got 4.5 in about 10mins of tweaking)

Mate, I have $x amount of dollars to spend on my PC, I'm just trying to get the best I can with that amount.

Yes, I could get more performance, or more bang per buck, if I put more money into it, but I can't.

If you think AMD is the wiser choice then by all means post a suggestion. I don't know much/anything about AMDs current offering.

But, uhm, in actual fact the question is moot since I decided to get a couple of WD640Gbs instead :S

Thanks muchly for your help though guys, I did learn a lot.

Rob.
